Becky, have you heard Mitch Benn's song about Alexandra Burke's desecration of Hallelujah?

It's on YouTube - I found this when I was looking for his Proud Of the BBC promo!

What a band he has...the guy playing various 12 string instruments will never be mentioned in the all time great guitarists lists but he was as good if not better than the usual suspects

I saw Lenny a few times in the old days but i couldnt make his last tour..heres hoping he does at least one more

Sat and watched this last great performances.
Even my OH liked his version of Halleluyah(sp) just wish i'd have gone

Now how do I sneak in 2 1/2 hours of Peter Gabriel in concert on in the next few days, I love my V+ box

Undiscovered, sneaking 2 1/2 hours of PG in at our house has to be done on a Saturday morning if my mum is out.

If it's not Strictly Come Fixing or Not Another Bloody Agatha Christie Adaption or property porn, she isn't interested. Oh, and Leeds United losing on Great Yorkshire Radio.

WEll I think I did pretty well getting last weeks Jools and LC in on one night while OH was pottering. PG started with Here Comes the Flood I was hooked straight away. Howvere EE was on at that time Sad

Now Leeds United losing sounds good to me, just a shame it doesn't happen as much as I'd like (Happy Blades fan beat Hull last night)
